Marchesi Biscardo

He belongs to a family of wine makers that has been making wine in Verona for four generations. It was his great grand father Terenzio Biscardo who had the idea to label the beautiful nectar that was coming out of our vineyard in Valpolicella, and by doing this he started the Biscardo brand, synonymous of high quality and traditional wines of Verona. He grew up in a little village called Bussolengo, 12,000 souls at that time in the suburbs of Verona, the enchanting city of Romeo and Juliet.  He grew up watching yellow and blue 18 wheelers trucks with his name on the side delivering wine everywhere in Italy. In the mid 80s his uncle first and his father then, decided to quit the company and they sold their shares to their uncle Luigi Biscardo. Successfully in the wine business as a trader, his father was selling wine around the world, but not our own wines, as there was not such a thing anymore.  He represented a number of other brands made of small boutique little vineyards from different regions of Italy. In 2000 he developed a partnership with a winery in Verona that let me use their facility to produce my own wine again. He would select the best grapes from the most suitable areas in Valpolicella and with the support of two excellent wine makers, Giuseppe Vassanelli  and
Giuseppe Gallo we produce the famous Amarone della Valpolicella, the Valpolicella Classico Ripasso and the Marchesi Biscardo name is now on the bottles of his wine. The rest is history….!
